            Anthony “Tony” Benchina, lung cancer survivor and patient advocate, discusses how hard it was for him to break the news of his diagnosis to his family. When that time came, they were there for him,and helped him through every step. Tony also discusses the power that prayer had in his life, “I never felt discouraged…we vowed from the outside just to be the best we could.” He found comfort in a website that allowed him to share health updates with those close to him, which took the repetition away of giving the same update over and over. Tony is now on the mend and surrounded by such a wonderful support system that he cultivated for himself.

The patient and the family can react quite differently, but support is needed for all. Randy Griffith talks about the influx of the emotions and how he was able to get support from the medical team at Moffitt Cancer Center and from their doctors.

His children, family, friends and extended community helped him re-locate to receive treatment. He was so worried about making others anxious and upsetting their lives when he realized he was at a point in his life where he needed the support from all of them. Tony encourages patients to enlist all the people they can for support.

                    Clinical trials are a choice and so are treatment options. With all the options presented, how is a patient able to know which is the best decision? How much time do you really have to make the best decision? Dr. David Carbone and Dr. Scott Antonia remind us that the most important step is to make sure you are diagnosed properly, without any assumptions, and go from there. Treatments are in no way like contracts. You are not bound to anything. As your doctors guide you through your treatments, they constantly re-evaluate how your body is responding to treatments, and how you are feeling overall. It can take time to find the best treatment for you. If one doesn’t work, it is important to move on to another.
